At each full-day training, you will learn two dozen assessment tests, as well as cross-fiber friction, and myofascial and deep tissue techniques to address pain and injury in some of the most commonly injured structures in the neck, shoulder, low back, and knee. You will also learn the anatomy of these structures as never before through physically locating and palpating each targeted muscle, tendon, and ligament with these techniques. This workshop gives you a comprehensive view of working with these injuries from initial assessment to treatment.

Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) give you effective stretching protocol for the upper body. AAS energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia, and makes building strength more effective. AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired. You will practice every stretch until you can perform them efficiently, both individually and in sequence, with the least effort. You will also learn self-stretches to teach your clients who need to focus on stretching specific structures.
